My fellow Kenyans we all know how difficult it is to get a job these days. The standards of living are very high, the economy is changing rapidly, you have academic documents but cant get a job, you are struggling to pay rent, borrowing and begging relatives pesa ya kutumia until they reject you, relatives want support from you and you spend a lot of money on fares travelling all over Kenya for job interviews but still they do not call you back. All these pressures and difficulties we go through every day, week, months, even years are so heartbreaking. Some Kenyans give up and go upcountry while some unfortunately end up doing crime and killing themselves.
